All About Reading Update - 2 Freebies!!!

We're going to be releasing the first level in our new All About Reading program tomorrow, Wednesday, March 2! Level Pre-1 teaches preschoolers and kindergarteners a very specific set of skills that we call the Big Five Skills. These five skills help young children understand the basics of language and how it works, preparing them to learn to read.

With All About Reading Level Pre-1, your child will play special games, enjoy little crafts, and engage in charming storytime activities--all the while absorbing these all-important Big Five Skills.

To celebrate, I'd like to give you two fun activity e-books that you can use with preschool and kindergarten children who are ready to start learning the Big Five Skills. Feel free to pass this information on to friends with young children. They will thank you!

Free e-book #1
Free E-Book #1: In the Kitchen with the Zigzag Zebra ((THIS IS THE ONE WE HAVE BEEN USING AND ZAC LOVES IT))

The Zigzag Zebra is in the kitchen cooking up a storm, and your child can help! And while your child is helping Ziggy, he or she will be absorbing critical pre-reading skills. The activities in this e-book focus on rhyming, identifying the first sounds of a word, oral blending, and clapping syllables--all designed to reinforce phonological awareness.

Free e-book #2

Free E-Book #2: Safari Stories with the Zigzag Zebra

We're on safari with the Zigzag Zebra, and your child can come along! The activities in this e-book focus on listening comprehension, which is a precursor to reading comprehension. You can foster listening comprehension by discussing stories and characters, expanding vocabulary, and exposing children to a wide variety of activities. Sequencing activities--such as those found in this activity book--are also great for improving comprehension.
Enjoy!
